Publisher's Summary

This explosive new audiobook challenges many of the long-held assumptions about blacks, about Jews, about Germans and Nazis, about slavery, and about education. Plainly written, powerfully reasoned, and backed with a startling array of documented facts, Black Rednecks and White Liberals takes on the trendy intellectuals of our times as well as historic interpreters of American life. Through a series of essays, Sowell presents an in-depth look at key beliefs behind many policies and trends. He presents eye-opening insights into the development of the ghetto culture, a culture cheered on toward self-destruction by white liberals who consider themselves "friends" of blacks. Black Rednecks and White Liberals is the capstone of decades of outstanding research and writing on racial and cultural issues by Thomas Sowell.

Really interesting

Interesting ideas, well researched, and clearly understood, black rednecks and white liberals offers some good arguments against the perceived wisdom that seems to drive certain political ideologies.

A couple of things to be aware of:
- Sowell tends to write in essay format which is fine but it does mean that sometimes the overall book lacks structure. Additionally, chapters often rehash the same ground as early ones, often even reusing examples.
- the narrator is good and clear but talks rather slowly. You might want to consider listening on double speed.

Excellent book

Superb and entertaining book. The reading voice is somehow monotonous but you forget about it when the subject is so interesting. It is great to see somebody against the politically correct tide.
